NIMH (National Institute of Mental Health)

The mission of NIMH is to transform the understanding and treatment of mental illnesses through basic and clinical research, paving the way for prevention, recovery, and cure.

In this way, breakthroughs in science can become breakthroughs for all people with mental illnesses.
